I really liked this. I think the women's relationship was very real; it felt deeply familiar. One wonders how a woman can put up with a creepy man for so long, but it does happen, so I suppose the novel can't be faulted for that.

Enjoyed this very much. Relationship novel, but she writes well and I cared about the characters.
